• I suffered from terrible migraines from the age of 11-made me sick aswell. We landed upon Syndol which was the only thing that worked for me. It had a drug in it that is used in some sleeping tablets- sort of like a muscle relaxant. But my headaches/migraines were very frequent and I was taking syndol several times a week. Then about 8 or 9 years ago it got discontinued I think due to a licensing problem with the muscle relaxant ingredient. I remember being in an absolute panic because I had visions of my life being blighted by constant migraines again. I had a couple of packs stock piled and became very strict with myself about taking them, reserving them for simply dreadful vomiting migraines and just trying co-codamol for the rest (nothing else even touched them)

    5 Live were are asking the other day;

    1. winner 2. surprise package 3. golden boot’

    So, 1. Germany (coz they always do) 2. Uruguay (good team plus Suarez), 3. Suarez (he will get a netfull against Saudi Arabia) and they Uruguay will progress (otherwise Mo Salah))

    Think England could fluke to the semi’s…..and Vardy will be the surprise hero when we start lobbing it long and they cant handle his speed coz not used to this style. Most pundits (Linekar, Waddle specifically) used to go and on about ‘England wont win until we start playing 5 in the mid field etc etc etc. But we havent got the quality of player for this continental style (only Scholes ever good enough) so we should play to our strengths – route 1 after 70 minutes !!

    I live with it every day and have nerve damage and back damage. I take I ibuprofen and went my thigh goes numb I have to touch my toes to relieve the pressure. In your shoes I would go to your GP if they are a good one then to a Osteo or hospital

    Tends to make people feel better when a member of the tribe does well against the other tribes, aka foreigners.

  • I am in no way condoning the grossly inappropriate behavior of some of the attendees which was completely unacceptable, but what the hell were the girls who went as “hostesses” doing by agreeing to go to an all male dinner under instructions to dress in skimpy black dresses in matching black underwear? What on earth were they expecting? A Bible reading gathering?

    I’m glad to see that the “Club” is to be discontinued.

  • @sophie Definitely don’t want chafing! Tkmaxx might be best bet then.

    @nicola Like the cats eyes but my behind is rather large and not one to draw attention too :
    I have these, but not brave enough to wear them running yet! Had them for Physio lol


  • Looking for a pair of long running leggings, preferably with nice big band at top to keep my little belly and cupcake holders (much nicer than muffin top 😀 ) in.

    Any advice on what ones to get?

  • I’ve had crutches from three separate hospitals (two different trusts) now and each time I’ve given them back when I finished with them. I think I even gave back my post-surgical aircast, though I vaguely remember them offering to let me keep that. The only thing I didn’t return was the brace I had after dislocating my elbow.
